I checked out the 0.7 branch and there is no example how to use it. 
Unfortunately the disk section of the drbdsetup.sgml does not explain 
what that kind of meta_data_dev and meta_data_index is needed for, or 
how to use it.

It would be very kind if someone can point me to the right way.

Since I have some experiance with docbook sgml I can modify the doc if 

rgds and thanks
